Dear Colleague:

I am organizing several sessions for the 2001 Society for Experimental
Mechanics annual conference in Portland June 4-6, 2001 on Time-Dependent
Materials: Biomaterials Applications to the Biomedical Industry. Several
sessions are being organized to address the broad range of research
associated with time-dependent materials, such as tissue and polymers, used
in the biomaterials and biomedical industries (see attached call for
papers). Experimental/analytical/numerical techniques with potential
application to this area are also welcomed. Abstracts should be sent
directly to me (via mail, fax and/or email) by OCTOBER 2, 2000.

Please feel free to share this information with others that you feel may
have some interest in this area.

I look forward to hearing from many of you, and to seeing you at the
conference.

Warmest regards,
Carl

Call for Papers


TIME-DEPENDENT MATERIALS: BIOMATERIAL APPLICATIONS
TO THE BIOMEDICAL INDUSTRY


Society for Experimental Mechanics
2001 SEM Annual Conference
Portland, Oregon
June 4-6, 2001

Track 3: Experimental and Applied Mechanics: Research and Application
N: Time-Dependent Materials

Abstracts Due: OCTOBER 2, 2000


The Time Dependent Materials Division of SEM is soliciting papers for the
Time-Dependent Materials sessions of the Experimental and Applied Mechanics
track of the 2001 SEM Annual Conference. Several sessions are being
organized to address the broad range of research associated with
time-dependent materials, such as tissue and polymers, used in the
biomaterials and biomedical industries. Topics of interest include, but are
not limited to:
* Material Development and Processing
* Experimental Techniques and Procedures
* Material and Mechanical Characterization
* Finite Element and Material Modeling
* Real Time and Accelerated Material Testing
* Real Time and Accelerated Component Testing
* Lifetime and Durability Analysis and Prediction

Prospective authors are asked to submit a short (not more than 500 words)
abstracts directly to Carl Popelar by OCTOBER 2, 2000. Upon acceptance,
authors will be asked to submit a 2-4 page paper, suitable for publication
in the Conference Proceedings, by March 9, 2001.
